Tip Porto - Manchester City
Porto welcome Manchester City to the Estádio Do Dragão on Tuesday night for a Group C clash in the UEFA Champions League. City are top of the group having won all four of their fixtures thus far. Avoiding defeat in Porto will ensure that they win the group. Porto, meanwhile, are second in the table with nine points from four games, their only loss coming at the hands of City in the reverse fixture. That 3-1 contest was not without its controversies, Porto feeling ripped off by officials on the night. They followed up that perceived injustice by winning seven of their next eight matches in all competitions. Domestically, they are currently second in the Liga Nos table, six points behind Sporting Lisbon after eight rounds. City have endured a slow start to the season with only win in their last three Premier League matches leaving them way off the top four. There have been flickers of the Pep Guardiola team that dazzled fans and rivals like over the past few seasons, but they have struggled to find a rhythm.
City have failed to win three of their last six away games in all competitions. Guardiola has been among the group of managers criticising the relentless fixture list, so we may see him play a weakened team here. That rotation could represent a chance for Porto to get on level terms with the English club. Porto have won 10 of their last 11 home games in all competitions. That record, coupled with their performance in Manchester, has us leaning towards a home result. Back Porto double chance.
